Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital seeks new CEO, president

ORILLIA Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) is looking for a new president and CEO as Central Ontario deals with the fast-paced changes of health care.

Dan Germain, hospital board chair says Pat Campbell will retire from those positions June 30, just four years after taking charge.

“Pat has enjoyed a long and distinguished career in healthcare organizations across North America, in both clinical and leadership positions,” said Germain.

“She has provided outstanding leadership to our hospital since she began in July 2014, ushering in an electronic medical record, establishing the Integrated Medical and Rehab Services unit and laying the groundwork for what OSMH will become through our Future Hospital project.”

Prior to joining OSMH, Campbell served as president and CEO of the Ontario Hospital Association; CEO at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto; CEO at ECHO, the agency committed to improving women’s health in Ontario; and president and CEO at Grey Bruce Health Services, a six-site hospital organization headquartered in Owen Sound, Ontario.

“I’ve been fortunate to have worked for some great health care organizations during my career, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work alongside the people of Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital,” said Campbell. “The staff and physicians here have a genuine compassion for their patients to ensure the best possible care.

“I’m very thankful to the communities we serve, in Orillia and beyond, for their trust and ongoing support of our hospital and I’m particularly proud of the work we’ve done to strengthen our partnerships with community healthcare providers to ensure patients are getting the right care in the right place.

“There is a real sense of community and family at OSMH and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish during my time here.  The hospital is well positioned for future success.”

Campbell will remain on the job until the hospital’s annual general meeting in June.

Recruitment for her successor is now underway.
